Raptors vs Pacers Prediction: Last Game Analysis

Raptors vs Suns

A formidable defensive performance helped the Raptors secure a solid home win against the Suns.

It was not a decent game for Toronto’s offensive leaders against the Suns. They struggled in shooting from the opening minutes. Toronto’s 3-pointer success rate of 33.3% looked too low against that of the Suns (46.7%). They were also outrebounded 12-27 by the Suns. However, the Raptors’ defense forced Phoenix to commit 27 turnovers that changed the contest in Toronto’s favor. They also outscored the Suns 48-34 in paint.

Gary Trent Jr. was the shining star for the Raptors as he finished with 35 points and 5 rebounds. Pascal Siakam played well too and contributed 26 points and 6 assists.

Los Angeles Clippers vs Indiana Pacers

The Pacers escaped a home loss to the Clippers by winning a close contest.

The Indiana Pacers faced a determined fight from the LA Clippers led by their MVP, Paul George. The contest went right down to the wire in the closing minutes. The Clippers were leading by 6 points with 5:27 remaining. A 13-point surge by Haliburton became the turning point and it put the Pacers ahead. In the last few moments, Leonard missed a 3 that could have tied the game. A successful free throw from Haliburton with 5.3 seconds left gave the key 4-point advantage to Indiana. George’s 3-pointer just before the end of the second half wasn’t enough for the Clippers to avoid a 1-point loss.

Myles Turner looked in top form as he finished the matchup with 34 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists. Tyrese Haliburton gave a valuable contribution of 24 points, 7 rebounds, and 10 assists.
